Man United still waiting on answer from Christian Eriksen

Man United are still waiting to see where Christian Eriksen wants to play his football next season…

The holes that were already in this squad before Erik ten Hag took charge still remain. If anything, those problems have only grown due to players leaving on free transfers.

As things stand, Manchester United haven’t made one single signing. Honestly, nothing looks particularly imminent on that front either.

One player who the Reds have been pretty heavily linked with is Christian Eriksen. On a free transfer, bringing in the Dane would be a nice piece of business. However, acquiring the attacker definitely isn’t a foregone conclusion – even with Spurs pulling out of the race…

According to Fabrizio Romano, United are ‘still waiting’ for the transfer decision of the player, with Eriksen seemingly still making his mind up.

The Italian journalist claims that Spurs are now focused on different players rather than bringing Eriksen back to White Hart Lane.

By way of competition, Brentford, who gave Eriksen his chance back in January, are also in the running to acquire the 30-year-old this summer.

A story we covered from The Guardian could spell problems for United here. Jamie Jackson claimed that the player could favour a move back to Brentford over an Old Trafford switch.

Whether that’s due to a lack of guaranteed playing time in Manchester, or the fact that Eriksen just wants to remain loyal to Brentford is anyone’s guess. In a World Cup year, there’s a good bet the Dane is intent on ensuring his place in his country’s squad is atop his list of priorities right now.

Honestly, this just shows us all how far United have fallen over the last few seasons. And it’s going to take some time for the Red Devils to return to the pinnacle of the English game.
